I feel that the people ever allowed to bring guns onto school grounds are law enforcement. Many people, such as myself, would not feel safe being in a school environment being around people with guns on their hip. We come to school to learn and to hopefully feel safe, but having tons of people with guns on them would not make me feel safe whatsoever. Yes, if there ever was a school shooting on campus, it could help bring the victim level down if there is someone in the area of the shooter. School shootings are pretty rare even though they have been more frequent recently. I feel like the students on campus that had a concealed weapon on them could end up being a victim if there ever was a shooting. For example, if law enforcement saw a man trying to shoot the shooter with his concealed weapon and they shoot the concealed weapon guy not knowing he was not the actual shooter, then that brings up a whole different situation of not knowing who was the shooter and who was trying to help until it is too
Since drugs and weapons have been invented people have always found ways to defy their personal purpose. An example is how people are smuggling illegal drugs such as marijuana into the United States. Another example is how weapons are not being used for war or crime but they are being used to murder tons and tons of innocent people, such as the 911 bombings which killed 2,996 innocent people. Of course, these terrorist attacks and drug smuggling are usually hard to stop, but there are some people that are not pros and get caught and a way to catch this is to conduct random locker searches. In Detroit, one random locker search was conducted and the police found six boys smuggling drugs, weapons, and so much more unwanted things. THINK of how many lives that saved and this is why the United States Of America needs to wake up and conduct these locker searches to catch any unwanted items from being used in a bad way.
Concealed weapons are a type of protection that many people have argued about for various reasons. Some people believe that carrying a concealed weapon should be a right that everyone should have, while others believe that it is unsafe for themselves or others. Concealed weapons are weapons, especially handguns, which are kept hidden on one's person, or under one's control (“USLegal, Inc”). When people discuss concealed weapons, they usually talk about handguns; however, any device or instrument that can cause harm or death to another individual is considered a weapon. This could include knives, tools, and items that could be turned into a weapon. Most states have their own laws when it comes to who or where someone can carry a concealed weapon and students who are on campuses must abide by those laws.
First off if you are going to own a gun you also need to own a safe. A gun safe should be required when purchasing a firearm in all states. Having a gun safe is only law in twenty-seven states and the District of Colombia. When you aren’t home your child has an easy access to your gun if it’s not properly put away. Having a gun safe keeps your firearm away and out of reach from your children. Gun safes have passwords, locks and keeps it safely secured. Having them looked up is not only safe but it’s teaching your children the importance of safety. If gun safes were mandatory in every household that owns a gun, children would not be accidentally killing others.
Teachers did not go into their profession to be babysitters, and they certainly didn 't go into it to be security guards. Now society is trying to force them to be both. How anyone could possibly secure those weapons so that students could never obtain them would be a nightmare- and unrealistic? And to think that if a school full of teenagers can access a weapon in every classroom that violence would decrease is absurd. There are many negatives to teachers owning guns such as: cost of training and weapons, teachers turning against their students, and keeping teacher who has the gun a secret. Having guns in the school would cause more
There is a possibility that a kid who is planning a shooting could just be in a classroom and find out were his/her teacher keeps the weapon, and they wouldn 't even have to sneak a gun in. That’s a downside but what if we made gun safes that only opened with a teachers ID or own password making it almost impossible for a student to open it.
In conclusion, locker searches should be enforced because of all of the violence in our world. I hope that before long schools will have this rule. It is scary to never know when you could be in serious
To conduct a locker search the school must alert the school board, parents, administrators and teachers before hand. The school would also need to hire more security, which is costly since they get paid an average about $40,000 per year. Students and teacher would also need to give up their valuable time to be able to conduct these locker searches. It would take at least 2-3 days to complete the search.
The carnage at Columbine alarmed hundreds of schools across the nation and influenced schools safety practices greatly. In this present era, school shootings appear to be becoming normality in America. After the shooting, schools both locally and internationally have significantly increased their security procedures. There are many different upgrades that schools have implemented to help prevent further tragedies; metal detectors are used to detect weaponry on-hand as well as security cameras on site all around the building – inside and out. These methods also include dress codes, security/police officials and ID room cards, the latter being implemented on my campus. If one were to access the necessity of metal detectors, it would come with
Guns have no role in our country schools. Schools and colleges are places of education. Students should be free to learn in an environment away from every day violence. The catastrophes that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Columbine High School, and Virginia Tech. confirm the penetrating conclusion guns have in our nation’s schools. Violence on campus has Students, Parent, and University Staff all concerned and looking for preventative measures. Guns on campuses make the vulnerable even more vulnerable. Even though having guns on campus would improve response time, having guns on campus would also increases the chances of a confrontation escalating and turning lethal.
Violent criminals know that currently schools are gun free zones, and can use this factor to their advantage. Rather than falling victim to an attack on the school; teachers could protect themselves and their students. Students could feel much safer if their teacher was armed. Students would feel more safe if they knew they could be protected from an attack from an intruder or another student. Criminals know that teachers currently are not armed and could potentially see schools as a target. Teachers could feel more comfortable in their classrooms if they knew they could protect themselves and their students from violent threats. Schools being a gun free zone are a target for violent
Being safe at school is something that a person shouldn’t have to worry, about but it has become a concern for a lot of parents, teachers, and school administration. Increasing security in high school, middle school, and elementary school would help control and protect the kids from possible threats, as well as creating a safe learning environment and show kids that police officers are good people.
Why should schools have stronger security? It’ll reduce the amount of incidences of violence. There have been 18 school shootings since 2018 started. That tells us that there needs to be security in front of the school doors that have a metal detector walk through. So many incidents have occured and they need to be stopped. Think about how parents feel, they think their children are going to school to learn and be protected. School is about education, we shouldn’t have to worry about our lives here. A walk through metal detector will indicate if a student or person has a weapon on him or her. There should also be armed security guards, like a school resource officer, that would help if anything with a weapon were to happen or anything in general. The guards will be there to protect us.
Should teachers and students be allowed to carry guns on campus? It would decrease the probability of a school shooting and if one does happen they can intervene quicker. Staff and students should be allowed to get a special permit to carry on college campuses.
With the advancement of surveillance technology, many citizens feel that their privacy rights have been violated due to homeland security and the threat of terrorism. Throughout history our government has implemented domestic and international surveillance as a way to safeguard our society from other countries. Now the question that seems to arise within our society is if the government is infringing on our civil liberties? Or is this indeed protecting our nation from imminent danger?
